Notes and Editorial Reviews

"I am thrilled every time I direct the LSO Strings. With an incredible amount of energy in just a few days we achieved a huge spectrum of colours in the Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings and Bartok’s Divertimento. We wanted to achieve an intimate chamber sound by relying on our ears and our reactions. Every player realised their own personal importance and impact on this recording and it is a big honour for me to be a part of their team and this recording. I think the LSO Strings are a very special ensemble". - Roman Simovic, leader of the LSO & the LSO String Ensemble. "I am thrilled every time I direct the LSO Strings.
